Yes, God.

Some of you may remember when I posted this post almost a year ago. For those who didn't see it, my husband and I were planning to go to Kenya this past August on a mission trip with our church. We decided not to go due to financial reasons. Since then, my passion to go has only grown, multiplied even. I can honestly say I regret the decision not to go tremendously.

Today though, my desire to go to Kenya was brought to the surface. Gary Snowzell, a pastor in Wales, spoke to our church. He spoke about passion in the church and passion in all that you do to serve the Lord. He asked the question "What is your passion?" Kenya was on my mind the entire service. Why Kenya? I feel like telling the WORLD about Jesus is every Christian's duty. It is our job, as fortunate people to hear God's word in complete freedom, to tell those less fortunate of hearing the gospel. I want more than anything to go to Kenya and be the person God has called me to be.

My husband is 100% supportive of me. He knows this will impact us financially, but he and I are trusting God, FULLY this time. The total cost of the trip for one person is $3,650, not including my passport and shots. Justin is praying about whether or not he will join me on this trip. He wants to be with me on this life-changing experience, but he also wants to make sure it is his calling as well.

I'm praying about which trip to go on and about the financial situation. If you would like to donate to my trip, please email me at I also hope to have a donation link added to my blog soon. If you could also pray for me and my husband and our trip, we'd appreciate it more than you know.

Thank you all for being so supportive of me and my crazy indecisiveness. I truly feel like God is telling me to do this and I couldn't be more excited!

I thought about you a lot today during the service and about how you were going to go to Kenya. I definitely hope you can go! I wish I could go with you but there is no way I could make that money or have the personality to tell those kids and kenyans about Jesus!!
